Heroin and opioid use are the leading cause of overdose in the United States. As a result of this rampant drug use, approximately 25,000 suffered the ultimate consequence in 2014. A staggering 82 of these deaths can be attributed to Suffolk County alone. Officials calculate drug use has skyrocketed over 100 percent from 2002 to present day in adults ranging from 18-24. As of today, the number of fatal overdoses has doubled since 2010. As desperate times call for desperate measures, Suffolk county police have been supplying Narcon, an anti-opiate used to fight fatal overdoses, to local addicts in need. Although this has certainly assisted in reducing the amount of overdoses, the battle against drug trafficking and non-fatal overdoses continues to persist.

Suffolk County and Riverhead in particular are seeing an alarming numbers of drug and alcohol related crime. Drugs are being shipped directly into New York harbors and subsequently distributed into small towns like Riverhead. Towns like these are feeling the brunt of the epidemic due to their close proximity to the city. Just last January, Suffolk county police apprehended two suspects seizing 730 grams of cocaine, 318 grams of heroin, 36 grams of oxycodone, and $200,000 in cash. The suspects, father and son, will face criminal charges and probable life sentences in prison. On a similar note, last week Suffolk County authorities arrested thirteen suspects in a gang related drug bust where an assortment of cash, drugs, and firearms were seized at the scene. These busts are prime examples of the epidemic we are currently facing in Long Island, the severity of the issue, and it’s potential to turn violent.

Riverhead police have also reported an increase in robberies in the past few years. Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter associates these rises with the increased use of drugs such as heroin in the Long Island area. It’s the basic belief among authorities that the increase in drug use is directly correlated to the increase in crime. Drug and gang activity had seen a sharp boost in Riverhead, and according to Chief of police David Hegermiller people stealing to get money for drugs “is probably the majority of all crime”.

The town of Riverhead is slowly but surely becoming a typical example of the endemic drug crisis in Long Island. Although the crisis only seems to get worse, there are still reasons for optimism. We have more knowledge and resources for treating addiction than ever before. Rehabilitation centers are becoming more advanced and optimistic in helping patients overcome this horrible disease affecting our communities. Millions of people around the world have successfully overcome addiction and you can too. Addiction no longer needs to affect the lives of the people we love so dearly.

If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction you owe it to yourself to seek out help. Addiction can be stopped but its up to you to take the first step. So please, if you are struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, take the first step and call out hotline for a free consultation.
